Welcome to Chesham Bridge Club

Welcome to Chesham Bridge Club.  We are a long-established,  friendly club and we welcome players of all standards.



Corona Virus

In light of the recent developments concerning the Corona Virus the Committee has decided to suspend all Face to Face Bridge sessions indefinitely.  We will continue to monitor the situation and update you if there are any further developments.   In the meantime, we are exploring options to play bridge online through BBO (Bridge Base Online). This is an American company and it offers players from all round the world the opportunity to play friendly games for free, or in tournaments, for a small charge.  We are hoping  that we can run a tournament for our members in the near future, so please watch this space. If you are in the vulnerable category, please stay home and stay safe. If you need to go out, please stay alert!

Instructions for joining BBO tournaments

Here are the 6 easy steps to gaining access to an AGBC/Chesham BC tournament. Note that the events, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, start at 7.15 pm. You should be able to register up to two hours before that time but no later than 7.05 pm

Step 1     Log onto BBO using your BBO Name and Password. You will be taken to the BBO Home page called Bridge Base Online Home.

DO NOT CLICK ON CASUAL as Online Tournament events are not found under Casual.

Step 2     Click on Competitive. This is in the section headed PLAY OR WATCH BRIDGE and you will be taken to the Competitive screen.

Step 3     Click on All Tournaments in the section headed TOURNAMENTS. This will take you to the Tournaments screen.

Step 4     Search for “AGBC/Chesham BC xxx” and click/tap on it. 

Step 5     Invite your partner using their BBO User Name. Your partner should also be logged on when you do this. 

Step 6     Your partner will receive your invitation to join you in the Tournament and should accept it.

Once you have completed Step 6, do not expect to be immediately transported to a table. Nothing at all will happen until the event starts. If you wish, you can log off now and return to BBO later but make sure you are logged on again in time for the event.

You both must be logged on to BBO 10 minutes before the start of the tournament.

If you do not have a partner for the event, you will find a partnership desk in the same screen where you invite your partner. You can enter your (BBO) name here. If anyone else has done the same, you will see who is there looking for a partner and you can invite them or they can invite you.

Tips for playing within the time limits: There is a clock at the top of the screen, so you can keep an eye on the time remaining. If you play too slowly, you will be timed out and awarded an average for the unfinished hand. However, The Director does have some discretion and if you appeal, he may be able to adjust the score if he thinks you were going to make the contract.

Please note that if you can see you are going to win all the remaining tricks, use the CLAIM button. This speeds up the game for everyone.

The results will be uploaded to both the Ashley Green and Chesham BC websites soon after the session has finished. 

Enjoy your Bridge!
